This from Drudge. It seems that Oprah, the Woman who is all about empowerment, equal rights, and being there for her fans is nothing but a HYPOCRITE. The show has gotten tons of requests from her fans to invite Sarah Palin on the Show. Oprah Refuses. You see America, Oprah is not about empowering people, Oprah is about empowering Oprah. Since she is an Obamamaniac, there is no way she will invite the most exciting and empowering women that has come across the political stage in years, on to her show. Even if the fans ask for it.

BIG DILEMMA: OPRAH BALKS AT HOSTING SARAH PALIN; STAFF DIVIDED
Fri Sep 05 2008 08:55:46 ET
Oprah Winfrey may have introduced Democrat Barack Obama to the women of America — but the talkshow queen is not rushing to embrace the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket!
Oprah’s staff is sharply divided on the merits of booking Sarah Palin, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.
“Half of her staff really wants Sarah Palin on,” an insider explains. “Oprah’s website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama.”
One executive close to Winfrey is warning any Palin ban could ignite a dramatic backlash!
It is not clear if Oprah has softened her position after watching Palin’s historic convention speech.
Last year, Winfrey blocked an appearance by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, timed to a promotional tour of his autobiography.
Oprah and executive producer Sheri Salata, who has contributed thousands of dollars to Obama’s campaign, refused requests for comment.
